This project is to design a fingerprint recognition system for security purposes. It will also explore and suggest some solution to the improvement to the existing fingerprint system. Security system that uses a pin code or access card can be easily misused or mishandled. A pin code can be cracked using some hacker software while an access card can easily be stolen or misplaced. Thus, these security methods are very vulnerable to hackers and criminals. Instead, a fingerprint is unique to every person and due to the fact that no two people have the same fingerprint pattern, it makes the fingerprint a very good resource in a security system. The aim of this project is to focus on the concept and methodology of the fingerprint recognition system. By grasping the concept and method of the fingerprint recognition flow, a prototype is developed that will compare an input fingerprint with its predefined template. The system should be able to compare and decide if the input fingerprint is the same as the predefined template. The output of the first stage is a preprocessing stage. There are two stages involved in preprocessing which is the image enhancement and image skeletonization. Fourier transfonn and histogram equalization is utilized to enhance the low quality image to a better image so that the feature extraction process will run smoothly. The second stage of the project is to define the orientation, ROI extraction and minutia extraction. The matching sequence and the angle orientation problem were resolved.
